The new administration led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa is working on improving the lives of ordinary people, and the nation must rally behind Government’s development efforts, Chivi Rural District Council chair Dr Killer Zivhu has said.
He made the remarks in Hwedza yesterday after handing over 400 bags of cement for the construction of Gumbonzvanda High School.
Dr Zivhu also used the event to bring the “One-is-Five for ED” campaign to the district, in which each party member is urged to rally four other voters to cast their ballots for President Mnangagwa in the July 30, 2018 harmonised elections.
He said: “We as Zimbabweans should unite and work together to improve our country. When we support Zimbabwe’s soccer team, we rally behind them as a nation despite the fact that players come from different local clubs.
“As we stand here as Zimbabweans, if there is something good you can do for Mt Darwin, go and do it; if there is good you can do in Gokwe, do it. This is our country.
Dr Zivhu continued: “As we approach elections, in Chivi we have what we call the ‘One-is-Five for ED Mnangagwa’. What it means is that each person should find four people who will vote for Zanu-PF.”
Dr Zivhu has since 2013 assisted Gumbonzvada High, which was established in 1981.
With an enrolment of 1 103, 250 of them boarders, the school achieved a 95 percent pass rate at Advanced Level from 2005 to 2017, scooped the Under-20 Boys NASH Trophy in 2015, while its Under-17 and Under-20 netball teams dominated provincial competitions in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018.
Hwedza South aspiring MP Cde Tino Machakaire applauded Dr Zivhu for his support.
“Dr Zivhu has given us 400 bags of cement; it shows that Zanu-PF is a united and organised political party,” he said.
